Africa, Lesbians & The Trip of a Lifetime

Africa, Lesbians & The Trip of a Lifetime

When I left San Francisco for my Wild Rainbow African Safari adventure three years ago, I had no idea what was in store for me —Driving through several townships with a man who grew up during Apartheid and stopping to have tea with his friends, surfing fun waves in Muizenburg across from the great white shark museum, being invited a dinner party with local […]

Is a Wild Rainbow Safari on Your Bucket List?

In 1998, Jody Cole had a life-changing phone call. “I was whining to a friend about how hard my life was and how everything was wrong because I was wrong, and well you get the picture. But in my self-involved haze, I hadn’t taken the time to remember who the friend was on the end […]

Love and Goodbyes

Love and Goodbyes

I Made It!

I Made It!

I was going to try to make it. I was really going to try. But this time I couldn’t make it by myself. At least I knew that much. I was going to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro – again. I was going to climb it, all 19,340 feet of it, for the second time. My first […]

Why Risk My Life on a Mountain?

In 1998, I had an epiphany. I was busy whining to my friends and to myself about how useless my life had been up to that point, and when you’re in that place in your life sometimes it takes just the right word to change your life forever. By the end of 1998, I had […]
